I guarantee that nearly every single player cares about playing this season. Most owners too, for that matter.

There probably a fair amount of ego involved in the negotiations on both sides but I highly doubt that is why Fehr came out of retirement to take the job. I doubt he was sitting at home, got the call, and said to himself 'Yeah, I want crush the NHL after what happened in 2004-2005.'

What likely happened and I know this won't be popular among the very pro-owner BoH boards is that Fehr was offered the job, saw the disarray the PA was in, and wanted to help. That's all.
